Giveaway – Mr. Price online voucher – Competition closed


How awesome are these?

I am still in awe by how Mr. Price has spoilt me and my munchkins at the #CTmomblogmeet (see my previous post here). Not only did they spoil us with gifts, they have also sponsored a little giveaway for 1 lucky reader of Hayley’s Joys.

I love shopping at Mr. Price, especially via their online store. As a busy Mom, it saves me time by avoiding going to the store, searching for sizes and not having to stand in long queues. Delivery is fast and if the goods are not suitable I can easily exchange them in any store.

I spent my Saturday morning with the best Mommy Bloggers in Cape Town! Cindy Alfino from 3 Kids 2 Dogs 1 House was the organizer and  host of the meet up and done an AMAZING job! We met at Graze in Kenilworth – such an awesome venue – I’m definitely going back with my family very soon. They have the most fabulous kiddies menu ever and their Grilled ham and cheese, poached egg and mushroom sauce breakfast is just heavenly.

Pregnancy update – 32 weeks


Only 8 weeks to go! I can’t believe it. This pregnancy seems to be flying by…

What’s happening with #2?

#2 is currently the size of a melon, weighs about 1.75kg and 41cm in length.  He was still lying in  breech  at my last doctors visit 3 weeks ago and I am hoping that he has turned or will turn into a head-down position before I go into labour. I can’t wait for my next doctor’s visit which is on Friday, to see what he is up to!

Nursery Design – Inspiring Baby spaces


With Alyssa settled in at school, her 2nd birthday party underway and all our little home improvements completed, we can finally start preparing the nursery for our little boy who is due to arrive in just 8 weeks! I’m excited about creating a special space for our son, where we’ll be spending a lot of time. I want a space that feels appropriate for a baby, but also something practical that would feel connected with the rest of our home.We are reusing many of the basic pieces from when Alyssa was little, but I am hoping to transform the room so that we still get that “new” feeling before baby arrives.
